Amiga Power über alles. I loved it to bits.

My favourite Amiga mags are the ones that feature the Atari ST ;)

... and early issues of Format, though I'd go more towards Games Machine style mags.

Amiga Power for me personally. I did used to buy some of the others such as Amiga Format on occasion but Amiga Power was the one I always looked forward to every month for both the content and the coverdisk. My father ended up selling the Amiga along with all my magazines and coverdiscs.

Amiga Format. All I ever did with the Amiga was piddle about with the Workbench graphics, so Amiga Format's dry style suited me fine.

Amiga Power.
If the game was crap they would say so, games were not cheap.
It was also the funniest magazine around at the time. :)

Didn't Zero also used to be a dual-format magazine? (Amiga & ST)

Amiga Format gave me Imagine 2.0 for free and started my tinkering with 3D... that alone justifies my vote for them...

Hold on, what about all those hours spent rendering, tying up my 'Miggy for whole weekends at a time? Ah, that's what the SNES was for...
:D

I've still got a stash of CU Amiga, Amiga Shopper, Amiga User International and J.A.M (Just Amiga Monthly) mags at home. These make excellent bedtime reading!

Someone should put them all together on one dvd.Although i know copyright/royalty's would make that impossible.
